You remember the White Bronco, don’t you? You know – O.J. Simpson’s getaway car? Nineteen years ago this week, the White Bronco entered into infamy as OJ tried to flee. He didn’t escape his fate. Not then, anyway. He actually did escape his fate later, though, during the ensuing trial. By being found not guilty of the murder of his wife and her boyfriend. Now, in 2013, OJ has a sad little life. In jail, awaiting a judgement on whether he can have a new trial for a mess he got into in 2008 when he was found guilty of breaking and entering.
Enough about OJ. He’s not really worth any more words. But, our Photo of the Week #11 is!
Day 176 of the Voyage of the Tramper 03/05/2013
Trailhead – Zion National Park, Utah
Another notable white vehicle. Not a white Ford Bronco. A white Ford minivan. And, not infamous, just interesting.
A Google search of “White Minivans Against Oppression” turns up nothing at all. So, we think it’s a just a bit of wordplay that doesn’t mean anything. A gently sardonic phrase meant only to adorn the side of said white minivan. Painted on there by an artist with absolutely no respect for the sanctity of the American minivan!
Here’s a couple of shots of more good art on the van:
Thanks, minivan artist, for some interesting pics!

Seen in Cherokee, North Carolina, on Day 64 of the Voyage of the Tramper. 11/17/2012.
Some cities decorate cows, others crabs (like Baltimore). Cherokee invoked the great spirit of the Bear. This one seemed especially apt to commemorate Memorial Day, when we remember and thank all those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country.

The open road, leading far off into the distance.
A beautiful day.

In February, 2013, we cross the Mojave Desert on Day 170 of The Voyage of the Tramper.

Wonder if she said “Yes”? Mr L sure put it out there!
The Queen Theater is a historic cinema palace, with a campaign to save her now underway. Check it out:
August 29, 2005 – Hurricane Katrina
September 17, 2005 – Hurricane Rita
Twelve and a half years ago, these two storms gave New Orleans a double-punch of hurricane winds and water.
In December, 2012, this photo was taken. What happened to the folks who lived in this house? Where are they now? Will this house be rebuilt or torn down or simply decay in its abandoned state?
Just one block from the levee, surely it was inundated. More than a few times. It’s a miracle it still stands at all.
Such were some of the sights seen on the Voyage of the Tramper.
